Editorial Reviews

A short but sweet introduction to the history of paper money, why we need it, the role of government in its production and regulation, and how it has evolved to the present day. Performer Leah Vandenburg's voice is upbeat and sweet (perfect for kids), while surprisingly funky music plays in the background. This is a nice little history lesson on an object we see every day, and would be useful for school projects, as well as curious kids in general. Even parents might find themselves picking up a few facts.

"I'm learning all sorts of stuff about stuff I didn't even know I didn't know. And it sticks. In a nutshell: wonderful." (Jonathon Margolis, Financial Times)
